A Will is a very flexible legal document. With a Will, you can assign a person(s) or a financial institution to manage your estate after your death (your executor), specify who you want to leave your assets to (your beneficiaries), and identify guardians for your minor children.In addition, a Will helps to ensure that your estate is distributed as you wish, that your children will have the care and resources they need, and that your death doesn’t create a legal and administrative burden to your family.
Here are several excellent reasons why you need a valid Will:
Despite all of the benefits listed above, many people never get around to making their Will. This can result in costly litigation and additional emotional pain for loved ones—which is unfortunate, because making a Will can be simple and inexpensive.

We have a Notary Public and Commissioner on staff to execute many documents including the following:
Government of Canada strongly recommends that Canadian children carry a consent letter if they are travelling abroad alone, with only one parent/guardian, with friends or relatives or with a group. For the purposes of this consent letter, a Canadian child is defined as anyone who is under the age of majority (18 or 19, depending on the province or territory of residence).
A consent letter is not a legal requirement in Canada, but it can simplify travel for Canadian children, as it may be requested by immigration authorities when entering or leaving a foreign country or by Canadian officials when re-entering Canada. The letter demonstrates that Canadian children have permission to travel abroad from parents or guardians who are not accompanying them.
At Law Booth, we can draft the letter for you while you wait in as little as 15 minutes. We ask that the person(s) consenting bring two pieces of ID’s including a passport along with the full legal names, date of births and passport number of the children and the person(s) traveling with the children.
